Sketchy Skates and Yah-Dude adverts plus South African skate company

Sketchy skates, Yah-dude and Hi-ramp adverts May 1991Sketchy Skates and Yah-Dude were two of the hard core of skate shops at this time. You’ll find their adverts scattered throughout the issues on this site. I’m struggling to remember what happened with Hi Ramp. Like all the companies trying to make skateboard equipment outside of the USA (or California, really) they would have had a real problem even getting a toe-hold in the market.

  1. I remember going to Yah-Dude back in 1988. it was a tiny place if I remember correctly! My mate bought a Vision Gator from them too of which Stampy at birmingham Wheels announced that it was a taiwanese fake…me thinks that he was more peed off the my mate didn’t buy it from him!
